best hugger and j2 honda?

Any recommendations for the best hugger for a 2009 fireblade? The bike is pearl siren blue so I'm thinking carbon but what make?

Thanks, Stegzzz

BTW, anyone know what happened to J2 honda in Southampton, their web site says they are closed for business.

Re: best hugger and j2 honda?

I put a HRC carbon hugger on my 2008 black 'blade and to be honest I regret it. I've made several modifications to the bike all of which are smaller/lighter and the HRC hugger just looks oversized. I saw that Akropovic make a smaller carbon one which may look better but a quick Google search should turn up some others too.
Hope it helps.
By the way strange about J2 in Southampton. Same thing happened to Motoselect Farnham about a month ago but no word about why. Rumour has it that they fell out with Honda who took their bikes back.

TaylorMade was my choice. It comes without clearcoat, though. I just spray-bombed it with repeated light coats. $300 US. Fit was fairly good; I just had to do a little tweaking for the brake line attachments.
